Serum cholesterol precursor levels and plant sterol were related to parameters of cholesterol metabolism in 22 patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. The serum levels of cholesterol precursor sterols were inversely related to fractional absorption of dietary cholesterol and subsequently positively to overall cholesterol synthesis. The serum plant sterol levels, on the contrary, were significantly associated with fractional cholesterol absorption and negatively with overall… CONTINUE READING
